Default Aren't siblings fun?

The girls both had a tummy bug and were up all night (or maybe it was just me and they both dosed on and off) night before last.

Around 3 in the morning, after Becca had her 3rd diarrhea accident, I told her she had to put a diaper on. This started the debate about baby vs. big girl, but after a little convincing, she was willing.

Susan woke up as I was the diaper on and said, "Mommy, I thought Becca wasn't a baby anymore."

I gave her the don't-even-think-about-continuing-that-thought look, and told her "She's not."

She completely ignored my look and said, "Well, why is she wearing a diaper?"

Becca, who had been lethargic and lifeless all evening and night found some strange source of energy to screech, "I am not a baby!!!!" while flailing her arms and legs (kind of defeating her point ).

Susan didn't miss a beat and said, "Why are you wearing a diaper then?"

I snapped back, "Susan, you aren't helping!"

Why would they push me when I've had no sleep and I'm ready to snap? If she hadn't been feeling bad too....

I know my brother and I didn't do that (although my parents would probably disagree). Are all siblings this fun or just sisters?

Oh, yuck! I hope they get over it soon.
My brother and I got into it throughout our entire childhoods, until we were in HS. Hang in there.

Oh Alison...I feel for you. Two with the tummy bug is hard to deal with (and on your own too!). I hope they are feeling better soon.
My sister and I fought like cats & dogs until I moved out of the house. My two are paying me back for it...Noah will pester Sophia just as a brother should

I know my brother and I probably had our share of fights. However, we grew up out in the country away from other kids, so if we were mad at each other, we had no one else to play with. Therefore, I think we have always had an close relationship.

I can't wait for the girls to hit the teenage years (I hope the sarcasm is evident ). I'll be wishing they only annoyed each other a little bit.
